Ceasium Posted January 30, 2013 Share Posted January 30, 2013 Well I don't want to live in a country which is only sone meters above the sea, or even less meters than the sea level. You will have a lot of problems cause of global warming. And anyway I'm living in the Swiss Plateau and not in the Alps. And anyway we have the luck NOT TO BE in the EU, while the Dutch are in this mess. We Dutch can build fairly good dykes, so there is nothing to worry about You clearly don't see how much we have gained from the European Union. The EEC, ECCS etc. prevented Germany and France from having new wars. If this hadn't been done we'd all pretty much live in poverty and be under some kind of dicatorial german/french regime, including Switzerland. Haven't you noticed the economic impact that the EU has had? The economies grew at a decent rate for several years, because getting rid of the borders enabled much more trade between the countries, stimulating consumption & producing jobs. The EU enables us to cooperate with our armies, which saves each country a lot of mony each year. Don't forget about the moral support it gives as well. The EU gives us a lot of more political power too, who would even be intrested in small countries like Lithuania, Holland Greece etc, if they weren't united in the EU? Plust it enables us to make statements to other countries, instead of everyone squarrelling and giving their own opinion happenings. Yes I know, that atm we are in quite a rough financial situation. I am sure that we can overcome this, and more of this mess in the future, if we give up our financial sovereignity. But the most important thing is is that the EU stimulates economical growth and specialization for every country so that we can easily compete with way larger countries such as China, the USA, India etc. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
